WASHINGTON, November 2, 2014 – Tonight is the fourth episode of Season 5 on “The Walking Dead” and last week’s episode Four Walls and a Roof left us reeling from the brutality of the attack on Gareth and his fellow cannibals, the death of Bob – whom, like Sasha, we all great to love and asking the ourselves and fellow chatters “Who was in the woods behind Daryl?
Part of the group, including Carl and Judith, has left with Abraham and Eugene, trying to get to Washington, DC. Michonne, who has stayed behind with Rick to wait out Daryl and Carol’s return, finds Daryl walking out of the woods. Before the show cuts, Daryl yells for them to come out. But who is it.
Not Carol, she would not be afraid to storm out. Not Beth, we know she is in a hospital in Atlanta thanks to sneak peek video. So who could it be?
Robert Kirkman says Season 5 is following the comic books more closely than previous seasons so it could be Morgan – however Daryl doesn’t make friends fast or easy… so I doubt in the course of an evening, Daryl would be willing to bring him back to the fold.
The goal of Eugene and Abraham is the Alexandria Safe Zone, a comic book pivot point. Is the person in the woods someone from Alexandria? Again, doubtful. Daryl does not trust anyone.
So that leaves someone new. A completely new character and we will just have to wait and see who Daryl, and possibly Carol, has saved.
Beth, Hershel’s youngest daughter, hasn’t been seen on The Walking Dead since she was abducted last season – however she returns tonight in “Slabtown.”
She is with some oddly organized survivors and in a very clean, pre-apocalypse like clinical setting. But ever group has their dark side
It looks like she’s ended up with another group of survivors we’ve never met, but this new location has its own dark side, and things simply can’t go well for Beth. Let’s hope she makes it through more than this episode.
Note the clock, its time is almost 5:04, the episode number for tonight’s show. Speaking of clocks, make sure you have yours set correctly – Daylight Standard Times falls those clocks back this morning.
Watch The Walking Dead: “Slabtown” on Sunday, November 2nd, at 9:00pm ET/PT on AMC and join Communities Digital News for our live chat that continues through The Talking Dead!
